It’s reassuring that, when you’ve been banging your head against a seemingly impossible problem for several days, it turns out that even eggheaded brainy scientist types can come across things that don’t quite work like they ought to. Yay for science, again.

(also on a science tip, this should help you maintain a bit of perspective on things – needs Java)

There are some really, really stupid people in this world.

Oh, and apparently – you know how the president’s plane is Air Force One? Well, his helicopter is apparently Marine One. Okaay. And his presidential limo is Cadillac One. I wonder how far that extends? Is there, like, a Coffee Mug One for him to drink out of? Does he evacuate his presidential bowels on Toilet One? The mind boggles.

More on that mad particle here and here.

    Surely that would mean a Number One in Toilet One ?
